World premiere of a brand new Scottish Opera commission. Inspired by Hillaire Belloc’s classic, Cautionary Tales, Dr Ferret tells the curious stories of Matilda, whose lies ignited a terrible fire, Henry King, who ate too much string, and George, a little boy who causes a lot of trouble.

Music by Stephen Deazley

Written by Martin Riley


Members of Scottish Opera’s connect company – 20 young singers aged between 14 and 21 – join players from The Orchestra of Scottish Opera to perform this brand-new adventure.
